Bike ambulance facilities would be introduced on a pilot basis in three districts of Delhi from January, seeking to provide quick pre-hospital care response in congested areas of the city, authorities said on Thursday.

"This facility would provide quick pre-hospital care response in congested areas. It shall reduce the incidence of mortality and morbidity by ensuring that patients receive appropriate medical care within the 'golden hour," Mr Baijal said.
 
It was informed to the Lt Governor that to meet the requirement of medical assistance in congested areas and to tackle situation during peak traffic hours, there is a need to deploy FRVs (two-wheelers) to complement and supplement the existing ambulances, the statement said.
 
 "These FRVs will be driven by trained paramedics and they shall carry basic first-aid kit, medical and other requisite items," it said.
